ocean avenue. president tan and please allow for me to speak. >> it has been around for eight years and the street life committee and the ocean avenue, is looking to bring the entertainment to the neighborhood and the neighborhood has been forgotten and so we are trying to revive it and give it the flavor, and so any questions, and i am open to answer and i think that i would be happy to hear anything else that you have to say. >> great, commissioner hyde, have you something to say? >> i am just really excited and i live in the neighborhood and i have often said that why are they not pulling these kids from the city college right down the street and stay into these businesses, through the limited live. and so i am glad to see
something like this happening in the area. >> great, thank you. >> and commissioner perez. >> thanks for come ng and i also live near ocean avenue and we are excited to see that there is this movement to have the entertainment in that area. and i was just wondering what type of music that you plan to do? >> well, you know, being born and raised in san francisco, that the music that the people produce and can do and it is huge. and so, one of the things that i feel that the ocean avenue association wants to push is jazz and they want to do that and we also got approached for the karaoke which is not music, but it is. but we just want to give the students things to do. and i mean, that it is really important, and it is like i said, it has been forgotten and overlooked for so many years. >> have you done any community out reach? >> sure. and we have to support of the street life community and the
engleside life and the ocean avenue and the idea of putting this together and so they speak for, you know, those organizations, and we reached out to the (inaudible) and they are extremely happy and the abc is just granting us the 2 a.m. and the business is doing great and they are striving and trying to keep pushing for ward. >> thank you, we look forward to checking out your place. >> thank you. >> any other questions? >> commissioner lee? >> in the police cab reports there has been like petty theft, and can you explain the outside lighting of your place, is it dark? >> yeah, but we have a street light right there and we have a motion detector light and then we have a sign that lights up too. san francisco and like i said, we have been open for eight years and we have not had any police complaints and this is a rule that you tell someone to be quiet if they get out of control and you advise them that you are going to call the
police and then, the next thing that you do is you call the police it is very simple and clear. >> it is not a lot of activity on that street. but there is a lot of lighting, but, you know, a lot of the businesses are closed, you know, they close at 6, 7 and they are coffee shops and that is it, and you know, we have restaurants that stay open until nine but it is not a lively neighborhood and it is not a lot and it is ocean street and so there is no sunlight, and i mean that on one side of the street for three hours a day and it is gone and here comes the fall. >> and do you think that a little extra lighting might, you know, keep the people away, you know? or if you have plenty of lighting. >> i think that we have plenty of lighting and i really do, for what is there, i mean that i can't put this, or make them open up. >> not the lights. >> from where i am, and you could definitely see that i just opened up the window and so you can see through it and i think that we are doing great. >> okay. >> the christmas lights. >> okay. >> all right. commissioner hyde? >> yeah, if i could speak to that. and i think that truly the only
reason that you would have issues on that street is because there is one person and they are a target and i think that by opening the street up to more business and more foot traffic, that that will only be helpful. and just because i lived there i noticed that if i should have to walk down that street and there is literally like, no one, and it is going to be nice to have the foot traffic and that will actually help and help the petty issues that are happening there. >> thank you. >> all right. any other comments from commissioners? if not, you can have a seat. >> thank you, thank you for your time. >> thank you. >> is there any police comments on this? >> or concerns? >> i don't see any in it. >> no. >> president tan. >> i apologize. >> vice president hyde and commissioners and lieutenant from the san francisco police department, just quickly because the issue of lighting was brought up and i want to
speak because there is an opportunity to kind of share some other avenues of enforcement. and although, bars are not mandated at specifically under the abc act for lighting, the act does speak to all of the license premises have to have the front of their premises, easily discernible. and their activity, and so, if lighting becomes an issue down the road, and i am sure that they can work with the licensee but as many of you may recall or know already, off sale, premises like the liquor stores they are required to have the exterior lighting but either way we have the issue to fall back on if it is an issue for the committee. >> thank you. >> and is there any public comment on the ave? >> all right, i don't see any. >> no? >> yes? >> anyone? >> going, go, gone. >> no one? >> do you want to? >> neil ballard. >> good evening, commissioners i am neil and i work for the
ocean avenue, association and the benefit district of ocean avenue and we can put the second sunday's program and the ave and actually java who is going to come up next, they are one of our top, picks for a place that we could have the entertainment at for second sundays is going to be the second sunday of every month and we are going to have the entertainment from four to nine. and you know, the ave is one of the only places right now on ocean that has the street lights and it is one of only two bars at night, that is. and so, i completely, and work and you giving them a permit and i would like to see, you know, i am going to get, more hopefully permits for your review, and i am working on the other bar on ocean and if you have any questions of the community out reach aspect of this or as of the lifters coming up, you can let me know,
that is it, coming up. thank you. >> any other public comment? >> public comment is closed. >> matter is now with the commission. commissioners? any motion? >> i move to approve. >> all right. >> second. >> second. >> there is a second. >> on that motion, same house same call? >> all right. >> that means that the motion passes, congratulations we are going to move on to the last permit of the night. fog lifter cafe this is the ocean avenue, second sunday locations and just like the ave, they would like to have a limited live performance permit, and they probably would use theirs a little bit differently as they are a cafe and not a bar, but, here to talk more about that, is jawad, swirky. >> could you speak in the mic. >> hi, i am the owner of thing for lifter cafe and i am applying for a permit just for music, that it would be like
acoustic guitar and we will have the lighting on site and we will have the lights and the (inaudible) is low and the cleaning and i just have a park outside and so it just looks nice. and so, we are looking forward to approve. >> great. any questions for mr. swirky? >> no, this sounds pretty easy. thank you very much. >> thank you. >> any police comments on this? >> you don't have to, okay. >> thank you. >> is there any public comment? >> we have one. >> good evening, commissioners, my name is castolano and i am working on two projects on the 1900 block and his cafe is a nice meeting place and it is
like the cheers of the neighborhood and we are hoping to fill seven vacancis on that block and i think that they have got the great vision to add a stimulus, you know, they have two, limited lives going and maybe two more going, and you are going to have a little connectivity over there and hopefully, you know, they fill those vacancies and all of those businesses get to know each other and you got a vibe and you has not had a vibe in a long time and the other businesses that were there and like the aquarium and the hobby shop and those things closed and so there is an opportunity, now to create something, special there. and so, i applaud these guys and i applaud the cbd for trying to get everybody together and create something, special. >> thank you. is there any other public comment? >> seeing none, public comment is closed. commissioners, i move to approve this one. >> all right. >> is there a motion. >> is there a second. >> second. >> and a second. >> all right, on the motion to
